  • A safe, positive environment
    Sets the foundation for life changing youth development work.

    Keeps youth engaged.
  • Supportive relationships, opportunities, expectations, & recognition
    Transforms time spent at the Club into experiences that change young lives.​

Outcomes

Our Clubs prioritize outcomes in the following three pillars:

Academic Success

Ensure that all Club members graduate from high school on time, ready for post-secondary education and a 21st-century career. All children and teens benefit from comprehensive homework help, tutoring, STEM, and literacy programming that provides them with the support, resources, and guidance necessary to succeed academically.

Academic Success Programs

Power Hour: Making Minutes Count provides Club professionals with the strategies, activities, resources and information to create an engaging homework help and tutoring program that encourages Club members of every age to become self-directed learners.

Money Matters promotes financial responsibility and independence among Club members ages 13 to 18. Participants learn how to manage a checking account, create a budget, save and invest, start small businesses and pay for college.

DIY STEM is a hands-on, activity-based STEM curriculum which connects youth to science themes they encounter regularly.

Character & Leadership

Help youth become responsible, caring citizens and acquire skills to participate in the democratic process. Program participants also develop leadership skills and gain opportunities for planning and decision-making. Kids are given the opportunity to take a leadership role in their Club and give back to their community.

Character & Leadership Programs

Youth of the Year is Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s premier recognition program. It is our signature effort to foster a new generation of leaders, fully prepared to live and lead in a diverse, global and integrated world economy. 

This unique program provides leadership development opportunities for youth to participate in activities, both in and out of the Club, in three focus areas: academic success, career preparation and community service. With the guidance of an adult advisor, Keystone Clubs aim to positively impact teens, their Club and local communities.

Torch Clubs are chartered, small-group leadership and service clubs for boys and girls ages 11 to 13. A Torch Club is a powerful vehicle that helps Club staff meet the special character development needs of younger adolescents at a critical stage in their life.

Healthy Lifestyles

Develop young people’s capacity to engage in positive behaviors to nurture their well-being, set personal goals and grow into self-sufficient adults. We provide hot meals and nutritious snacks, fun and engaging fitness activities, and competitive sports, to get Club members excited about leading a healthy lifestyle.

Healthy Lifestyles Programs

Triple Play is a comprehensive health and wellness program. It strives to improve the overall health of Club members ages 6-18 by increasing daily physical activity, teaching them about good nutrition and helping them develop healthy relationships.

Passport to Manhood teaches responsibility to boys ages 11 to 14 with sessions that focus on a specific aspect of character and manhood through highly interactive activities.

SMART Moves is a prevention and education program addressing problems such as drug and alcohol use and premature sexual activity.

SMART Girls provides health, fitness, prevention/education and self-esteem enhancement for girls ages 8 to 17.

Our members take part in many recreational activities at our Club gyms, basketball courts, and fields.
